English poet and writer
(1784 - 1859)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 4 of 4

Anglers boast of the innocence of their pastime; yet it puts fellow-creatures to the torture. They pique themselves on their meditative faculties; and yet their only excuse is a want of thought.
      - The Indicator (XI) [Fishing]

If you become a Nun, dear,
  The bishop Love will be;
    The Cupids every one, dear!
      Will chant--'We trust in thee!'
      - The Nun [Love]

Green little vaulter, in the sunny grass,
  Catching your heart up at the feel of June,
    Sole noise that's heard amidst the lazy noon,
      When ev'n the bees lag at the summoning brass.
      - To the Grasshopper and the Cricket
        [Grasshoppers]

Wit is the clash and reconcilement of incongruities; the meeting of extremes round a corner.
      - Wit and Humour [Wit]
